Get to know what Dropbox backups represent and ways to enable them for your hosting account.
Dropbox is a file storage service, that enables you to store any sort of data. The files are synchronized between all computers where the Dropbox application is installed and you are able to access them via any device, even a smart phone. Unlike an Internet hosting service where the files are executed and an html file, for instance, shall appear as an actual webpage with text and images on it, in Dropbox you shall see the content as a list of folders and files. If you already have an account with them or open a new one, you can take full advantage of our 100 % free service and you can link a web hosting account on our end with the Dropbox account so that our system can make regular backups there. This way you could have a copy of your data on our web servers, on their servers and also on your PC and you shall be able to access it from any gadget so long as the Dropbox application is installed, which will offer you more protection if something happens with your data, such as an accidental deletion, for example.
Dropbox Backups in Cloud Hosting
If you would like to take full advantage of our Dropbox backup service and you have a cloud hosting
account, you'll be able to enable this option with a couple of mouse clicks in your Hepsia CP and our system will start making backups the same day. Determined by the disk space quota of your Dropbox account and how much content you have on our servers, you can select the number of different backups that'll be created, ranging from three to fourteen. You could also choose if backups will be made only of the website files or of the databases too and Hepsia will permit you to enable this option for each Internet site or database separately, so you can back up just the content you actually need. Activating the service is very simple and all it takes is to incorporate your Dropbox account inside the corresponding section of Hepsia. You may also add multiple accounts and removing one you no longer want to use takes simply a click. You can use this service together with our regular backups which are created four times a day and incorporate all of your files and databases.
Dropbox Backups in Semi-dedicated Servers
All semi-dedicated server
accounts created on our state-of-the-art cloud web hosting platform feature the Dropbox backup function by default, so you can link an account which you have with them with several mouse clicks. The tool which you will find in the Hepsia hosting CP will permit you to select different options - what Internet site files and databases will be backed up and what amount of copies must be kept inside your Dropbox account. This way you could have a copy just of particular content for up to 14 days back. These options can be changed easily anytime and you could even use several Dropbox accounts or delete ones that you no longer want to use. You should only make certain that the total size of the backups does not exceed the disk space limit you have on their end. Because the backed up content can be accessed in a conventional folder on your PC, this function is a practical addition to the daily backups which we'll generate of your whole account at least four times every single day.
Dropbox Backups in Dedicated Servers
It will take you only a couple of clicks to link your Dropbox account to a dedicated server
from our company if the machine is set up with our progressive Hepsia Control Panel. The easy-to-use interface shall provide you with access to a variety of options such as what precisely to be backed up and what number of copies to be saved at the same time within the Dropbox account. This versatility is handy if you have loads of data on the server and you don't need all of it or in case the free disk space which you have within the Dropbox account is limited. You could select certain domain and subdomain folders or even only specific databases to be copied to their servers each day and the amount of copies that you can have is between three and fourteen. Both options could be modified based on your needs whenever you want and shall take effect the next time our system produces the backups. The Dropbox account can be erased with a mouse click and if you no longer would like to use it or you don't have one, you may also consider the backup service we offer with the Managed Services upgrade along with many other tasks which will make the management of your dedicated hosting server a lot more easier.
